    Rider swap- I have a baby and child under 3 who will be able to ride 7DMT. Can my husband ride while I wait with the 2 kids, and then he takes the baby and I ride 7DMT with 2 year old? If so, how will the CM know he can ride since he won’t have a ticket?

    Heigh-ho, Kathleen! I am so glad you have discovered the Rider Switch Service. This is such a great benefit for families of little ones so that everyone can still get in on all of the fun! Let me give you a quick rundown on how exactly it works and hopefully, that will answer your question.

    When you approach an attraction that offers Rider Switch Service, you will inform the Cast Member at the entrance that you want to use this service. You will need to have the baby with you, so everyone needs to stay together up until that point. If your husband is going first, then the Cast Member will scan your MagicBand or Disney Theme Park Ticket to link the Ride Switch pass to you. Your husband can then go into the standby queue to wait in line for the attraction. To make this an even faster process, you can make a FastPass+ selection for him, which will allow him to use that line instead of the standby line. After he finishes riding, you and your two-year-old will head to the FastPass+ queue and scan your MagicBand or Disney Theme Park Ticket to access that Rider Switch pass. Since two-year-olds do not require a Disney Theme Park Ticket for park entrance, there are no worries about needing to scan anything for him to enjoy the attraction with you. As long as he meets the height requirement, he is welcome to climb aboard and have fun!

    Be sure to look over the current listing of attractions that have a height requirement. Know that you will be able to use Rider Switch Service at these attractions. Also, take a look at all of the attractions with no height restrictions! There is a whole world of magical memories to be made with your family at these attractions. I hope this helps you understand Rider Switch Service a bit better, but please let us know if you have any other questions!
